Which house debates it? That will be something worth watching. I've watched some "discussions" in the House of Commons on TV (what they call "the telly"). Wide eyed wonder. It is a wonderful thing.

We were told there will be only one referendum, no turning back from the decision...

You're right a re run of the referendum is a stupid idea, good job your written constitution lays out exactly what the rules are for this sort of thing.
Oh wait, I forgot, you don't have a constitution, it's entirely in the hands of the house of commons.
Oh well, best of luck with the exit negotiations and the recovery. We have our team of EU negotiators ready to go, and we're not in the mood for waiting until you fill the power vacuum left behind after the result.
Just remember, there is now no reason why the EU should consider a negotiated withdrawl that will benefit the UK, and the final agreement will have to be passed in the commons before it can be accepted. This is exactly how the Irish Civil War was started, but this time in reverse.
I could go on, but as it happens we're a little busy right now talking to Scotland.

You cannot keep re-voting until you get a result that you like.

Quick question: Are you from the UK? If not, then this isn't really your call, is it?
